REPUBLIQ is truly impressive. A lavishly designed and decorated nightclub located within the Resorts World Casino and lifestyle complex in Manila, REPUBLIQ is the hottest nightclub in the Philippines.
Since opening in 2010, REPUBLIQ has established a huge following in the Manila nightclubbing scene and is packed with guests every night it opens. Inspired primarily by the clubbing scene of Las Vegas, and also drawing influences from the leading supperclubs of New York, Miami and Ibiza, it is the largest nightclub in the Philippines- comfortably accommodating 300 seated and 700 standing guests. The ownership group behind REPUBLIQ have a successful background in the Manila nightlife scene with previous leading Manila venues such as Embassy, Encore, Member’s Only and Manor.

The reception lobby
The entrance to REPUBLIQ is accessed from the Atrium space on the second level of the Newport Mall at Resorts World. At the front of the club entrance is the Cafe Republiq, an international cafe serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. The reception area features flooring of LED lighted glass panels, full height white velvet curtains and a striking gold chromed counter. Proceeding inside the club from the reception area, the next space encountered is the Lounge– a darker, quiet space for bag checking, a merchandising store and with some seating. Up a few stairs, the Main Room envelopes the guest with it’s spaciousness and luxurious decor. A huge space with soaring ceilings, four large bars constructed from platinum tufted leather, and seating booths, and tables around the various sections of the floor space. The striking stage at the front is gold chromed and dominated by an enormous LED wall screen. Not surprisingly, the state-of-the-art lighting effects are outstanding, with vast arrays of equipment suspended from the high ceilings. The entire experience is one of sophisticated luxury and targets the discerning, mature club goers.
